By staying here with us we can recommend where to eat with the locals, hire a boat at the most competitive cost, show you the hidden places with the locals shop from finding the freshest baked bread to the best markets to the trattoria's where the Italian's dine away from the tourists or the very best bar's where the tastiest snacks keep coming with the drink's! If you need to hire a scooter or cycle, find the best hiking routes, or pathways around the lake for scenic walks we will point you in the right direction.

As amazing as the photos are, they just don't do this property justice. The property is immaculate, romantic, modern and spacious. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and comfortable sleeping arrangements for 4-5 people. The views are breathtaking from every level. There is a lift (elevator) to go from floor to floor. The lower floor bedroom has a double bed and it's own bathroom. It's is quite private and separate from the main living areas (need to use a key and the lift to access the main rooms). Main living space contains a master bedroom with a queen size bed, tons of closet/storage space, a nice size family room/eating area/kitchen, a full bathroom, and a small bedroom with two twin beds. The home has an attached garage as well. As beautiful as the home is, by far the best part are the VIEWS VIEWS VIEWS!! The jacuzzi sits at the top of a hill with unparalleled vistas of the mountains and lake Como. There are lovely gardens and places to sit and take in the beauty. We spent 4 days here, and could have stayed longer. One item to note: You MUST have a car or Scooter to get around here. And you MUST be an excellent driver!!
Italian Apartments was wonderful to work with! They were efficient and organized. They made sure we were comfortable. They arranged dinner reservations at a FANTASTIC restaurant right on the lake. They also (for a small fee) had groceries and wine waiting for us upon our arrival. I have only one recommendation - the home should have a binder/book with detailed instructions in English on how to use the main appliances / AC, etc. It would certainly help.
The owner lives next door and is a wonderful man. We were lucky enough to meet him and get to know him a bit. Overall, I just can't say enough wonderful things about this home! We would definitely stay here again.
Our first time in Como but certainly not our last. Colonno is very quiet, no hustle or bustle with just a 3 minute drive to Argegno for the ferry, shops and restaurants so a car was essential. The home is well equipped, better even the photos online which is always a pleasant surprise. Lovely quiet spot, spellbinding views and great outside space. Drinks under the stars in the jacuzzi at night from the top floor terrace just topped everything off! Simply superb.
